Join us for our annual Banned Books Week event on the Diag! In effort to bring awareness to issues of censorship, we're hosting a pop-up library of children's and young adult books that have been banned or challenged in libraries and schools in the United States. Bring a banned book to read, learn more about the censorship of young adult literature, and meet up with other readers.
If it rains this event will take place in the Shapiro Library Lobby.
12:00 PM to 01:30 PM
